When I first purchased tickets for this show it was being billed as "Robyn Hitchcock & The Venus Three." After a few weeks the event was changed to "Robyn Hitchcock & The Nashville Crawdads." It was advertised that Peter Buck and Nashville Friends would be playing with Robyn - but all other possible guests remained a mystery right up until show time.
Robyn started with Belltown Ramble and when he got to the line "Where the Claremont used to be CLA-'REM'- ONT" - out walked Peter Buck quickly followed by Gillian Welch, David Rawlings, John Paul Jones, and Sean Nelson. It was a pretty good bet that Gillian and David were going to be there - but, everyone was simply blown away by the fact that John Paul Jones was playing mandolin.
The performance put in by the band this night can be summed up by simply saying that it was "Fantastic!" The vibe was relaxed and there were several "huddles" to discuss what songs/chords/parts everyone would play. Robyn told a few crazy stories as is his tradition - and the night was very magical.
Enjoy the recording and continue to share the gift of music.

This show remains one of most amazing archive treasures extant.
Were you to care about great tunes played by committed musicians and people who get how silly it all can be, and yet how lovely, you'll love this.
I swear this is as good a show as you could hope for here.
can't say enough. but I'll keep trying.
Loose in the best possible ways, the players and audience are having a wonderful time.
I especially love Miss Ohio > end of show, esp. Television, and Queen Jane.
Returning, because this show is that good.
There's tons of wonderful music on the archive.
I know, I've downloaded gigs+.
This is one of my favorites......(there are some shows from the 3 Kings Pub that are in the running.)
Just look at the band!
Loose, goofy and absolutely wonderful.

Subject: I Wanna Destroy You
d2t01 is dialog that begins with "Guitar Strings" but also goes into the topic of "Bush and Rove." Since the dialog began with "Guitar Strings" and represented almost half of the track - I simply labeled it as "Dialog (Guitar Strings)."
d2t02 is the actual song "(A Man's Gotta Know His Limitations) Briggs" and ends with Robyn dedicating the next song to the administration "in an unpleasant way" - which leads directly into "I Wanna Destroy You."
d2t03 is "I Wanna Destroy You" and was the final song before the encore.
Hope this helps clear everything up.
Subject: What A Great Show
Two days later in Atlanta, he'd lost his voice and sounded, by his description, "like Leonard Cohen doing Robyn Hitchcock". The Atlanta show was a little short, but still great, but this Nashville night is nothing short of magical.
Robyn has the uncanny ability to do covers of just about any other musician....on this night, he took on Talking Heads; twisted the lyrics around a little, but a mesmerizing performance.
Thanks for recording and sharing.
